Pretty Women

Say bonjour to fuller figures and longer hemlines as the skirt and dress silhouettes of the late ’50s / early ’60s swing their way back onto the scene as a 2010 /2011 fashion trend.

When we talk about the ’60s dress or skirt in this context, we’re not talking about the later, mod ’60s movement of miniskirts and teeny shift dresses. We’re talking about early ’60s ladylike dressing that flowed on from the late 1950s.

For my shirt i was looking for something bright and fresh wich brought me to Chantkare. They have such lovely and colorfull designs this summer and i felt in love with the jacket i am wearing today wich is the Ming Vintage jacket in red. The Tassels that comes with the jacket are optional but give a very nice detail to the jacket.

The overflow of ’50s prom style dresses into ’60s day wear. Full, below-the-knee circle skirts, cinched in waists, and prim, proper styling. Something wich we will see back is the granny skirt.
Don’t panic about the name of this one; this look actually was commonly known as the granny skirt back in the ’60s haha. The key to pulling off this look today is to either make it completely effortless, or surprisingly sexy

The skirt i am wearing today is the Daisy – black system skirt from Kunglers. Did you see the black waist band, for the cute effect. So adorable dont you think.

For a sensual,early ’60s look i choose the Tiffany hair from Vanity Hair. But ofcourse you can also fit it more into 2010/2011 and then just choose hair trends like a messy topknot.

To make my style a little more 60′s and more complete i am wearing the gladys glasses in red from Artilleri. The earrings i am wearing are a part of the Curie ruby set from R.A.Crystal. The bracelets are the Pearl Rain Bracelets in Onyx color from Mandala. My nails are from CCD (Caithlin Carter) and are the girl next door long nails in red.

My shoes are the Damasamba Pumps from Baiastice. They are so well made and i really couldnt resit to buy them. Check out those textures and in combi with the straps they are so unique. The pumps come in 10 colors. 
I think they are a must have in every female inventory.

Ofcourse also today i didnt go out without a bag. The bag of today is from Miel. This glitter bag comes with and witout animations and you can change the color of the bag.

Have fun with shopping 😉

Back to the 70’s

In recent years we’ve worn the best of the 20s and 30s, seen the rebirth and fading of an 80s come back, and we’re just about to do it all again. But this time, its the 1970s that are due for a reinterpretation.  While 70′s fashion is making waves and sure to continue on as a fashion trend in 2011, let’s not forget that there are several variants. And you know what that means; all the more ways to get lots of wear out of your key seventies pieces, by taking them from 70′s boho to a more sophisticated 70′s look.

By day it’s all about clean yet voluminous silhouettes, and earthy 70′s colour palettes.

One of the things that is coming back from the 70′s is the High waisted wide-leg pants. The pants i am wearing today is the boyfriend shorts in brown from Deetalez. By this pants you can choose to use a belt or the version i am wearing today with a highwaist Bow. Roll neck sweaters tucked into pants or skirts are also something that comes back from the 70′s. I didnt choose for a sweater but for the Miraji Body Black designed by CheerNo. One of the effects from the 70′s is working with layers and over my body top i am wearing the Chocolat Short Trench jacket from Maitreya.

The hair i am wearing is the Christina – caramel from Truth. I also like to mention that the 100% of the payment of this hairs (and all hair from truth untill september 19th) goes to the UNICEF Pakistan Flood Crisis Fund.  Today’s skin is the LAQ ~ Elena skin (fair) wich gave me this natural look.

My brown shoes are the Dncorde Danse boots from LeeZu. I have blogged them before but they are just the perfect combi for me with this outfit.

To finish my outfit i am using the brown/gold nails from Mandala and this cute Big Clutch brown bag is from So many Styles

Think you again have some great things to shop about. All designes come in more colors so you can mix and match until you drop 😉

Military Fashion

During some styling this weekend i came up with this fine stylish combination of designs. I was getting told to be inspired by the rl Military Fashion and this was something i needed to dare to do and i must say i mixed and matched all the way haha.

Military fashion as a trend is nothing new. But with all that’s going on in the world the military trend couldn’t be more present-day and that’s why this look refuses to submit as it keeps evolving into new variations.

This season designers rl and on sl took their inspiration browsing through every military uniform era in the archives. From Napoleonic styled jackets with high stand collars to gold bordered hussar influenced garments to admiral coats, the military jacket is a winter fashion statement. Think metal buttons and stick to colours like navy, grey and even red. Leave khaki hues for the spring season. Add a bit of runway glamour by teaming up the jacket with jeans or jersey dresses and knee high boots.

First i started with my jacket. The jacket you are seeing is a part of the Diram Cheryl Attire. The black top under my jacket is coming from Cynthia Smit, i used the partygirl top in black/silver. To get a good trendy pants i thought that would be difficult but when you want something original why dont you go to CheerNo, they also have some female designs (and i hope they will make more of them). The pants is the CheerNo Femme Samy Pants and just look at those cool details at the sides of the pants.

Then we get to a point where we need boots hahaa and that was one of the hardest stuff because you want something trendy and dont endup with shoes you always wear so i choose the black western boots from J’s 

Something i love to use are those female gloves where you see some of your vingers and hands, i remember i saw them at xplosion and used the blacklace space gloves from them. The nails i am using are from Caithlin Carter (the diva black nails). The belt is from Mandala, and the sunglasses are from Steinwerk Designs. My earrings come from Glow Studio today and last but not least is my hair from Argrace and is named the Military Cap “Loose Chignon”.

Poses today are from Di’s Opera

Today i am wearing the Maitreya Short Trench Jacket in Orchid. The jacket has a beautiful sculpted collar, comes in many colors and you can match it with so many things. I choose for a skirt with the name Maitreya – Viento Skirt. I am wearing the Black Satin version but also the skirt comes in many colors/styles and even in color combinations. The belt is resizeble and it come with a colorchange option. You can style with this skirt in many ways like being casual for a girls night out or be more elegant and classy.  And well it woudnt be me if i didnt make it in both ways.

To complete the total look i used the Maitreya Zoe – Caramel hair wich gives me a casual but elkegant look. The necklace and earrings (not being seen at the pic) are from the new Je Suis Tente jewelry set in pink (also availble in aqua, deep water, fire, forest, sky and sunset).

Ofcourse we girls can not leave our homes without a bag. My bag of today is the  YS&YS Espalmador Bag in Pink made of  luxurious pink leather. You must check the details because they are awesome and so cute. The bag comes in more colors then only pink.

The shoes of today are the  Maitreya SoHo Boots ‘Boho-Rock and i just love the combination between leather and wool. These boots are at the shop in more colors, so you can wear them with any colorfull outfit.

Last but not least are my nails. Since prim nails exist i am really addicted to them. I have used the Mandala Takara in Pink, the rings are coming with the nails.

For now you have some ideas to create a lovely style, so dont miss the sale at Maitreya or you will be very sorry for it because OMG 50% discount!

Styling Card Part II

And here is Lytham again! \o/

Today I have been shopping like CRAZY! I didn’t even know wich outfit I was going to Blog about today, because I had way to much choise!

After trying a bazillion skirts, jeans, trousers, blouses, tops and shoes… This is what I came up with for today!

As you can see, im not much of a ” Skin-changer “. I am like one of those whiners, who think that your skin and shape just totally show who you are. So as soon as I find myself a skin wich I feel comfy with, I keep that one till I almost drop dead, or well.. may be.. perhaps.. sometimes a designer suprises me with a MARVELOUS skin.. wich makes me wanna wear it. So far no skin has done that to me exept for the Taylor Skin from League. Obviously a skin I can truly recommend! Same counts for my lippiercing. It’s the same as in my first blog. It’s just part of  ” who I am “.

What am I wearing!

* The blouse is actually what you call a Big shirt. But I decided to not wear the lower prim-part of this awesome blouse. I think it matches better like this with the skirt. But truly.. also with lower prim, it’s a true must have! Black with stripes and in my opinion, very sexy but with style! I found this Big shirt at NINIKO.

Name of the shirt: Big Shirts – Stripe Black

* This skirt also comes from NINIKO. It’s available in 3 colors. Brown, and used Blue Jeans. I truly adore this skirt. And I recommend going shopping there. They also have like an awesome men’s department! Totally worth taking a look.

Name of the skirt: Fulsculp Wrapskirt – Sweat

* The hair comes from my favorite hairshop Maitreya. Not only do I buy my hair there, but also my shoes and clothes. Truly DO NOT forget about going to see that store and keep that LM save!

Name of the hair: Nimue – Blacks Pack

* The tatoo I found at the summer of Love fair. I wear that tat almost everytime when im beeing like half-naked. It’s becomming a part of ME! It’s from The Plastik! A store you should really check out!

Name of the Tatoo:  Vintage – Light

As you can see above, the skirt has some nice little details wich makes the skirt even more awesome. Also there again are the nails with the rings from Mandala. I’ve got them in lot’s of colors to match with every outfit, because I truly can’t live without my nails anymore!

* Last! These boots from BAX make me wanna walk sexy, dress sexy, act sexy, feel elegant, shake my bootie around everywhere I go. They most definatly make me wanna show myself off! They come in multiple colors and each pair of boots are containing a menu with one hell of a menu. You can choose between 4 colors for the boots and everything else, like sole, heel… etc etc is color change-able as well! Go grab those boots, run as fast as you can to the closest sim with the most people to show yourself off!

Name of the Boots: Prestige Boots Black Suede



Now… 1, 2, 3…. RUNNN!!!

And ofcourse never forget that the most beautiful things in the world, cannot be SEEN, nor touched, but are felt in the heart..

Much Love from yours truly,

Bo Lytham
